. the reason pollsters are obsessively polling ohio and political reporters flooded the state and barack obama and romney have been living there is because it's most likely the state to win the election. if romney wins florida, virginia and colorado, it's still difficult for him to get to the needed 270 electoral votes without winning ohio. there's one lone point of comfort as the polls tightened to a tie or a slight lead for romney. in ohio, polls reliablely show romney two to five points behind the president. political observers spent a fair amount of time why barack obama is outperforming his national numbers in ohio, among white men. the ohio economy is outperforming the national economy. ohio has a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, it's seen a faster rate of improvement. a big reason for that is, of course, the auto rescue initiated under the bush administration and executed under the barack obama team. an estimated 160,000 of them wouldn't have jobs if the government wouldn't have stepped in with loans. the reason that it comprised one-half of joe biden's two-line campaig
suggested that former secretary of state colin powell had crossed party lines to endorse president obama because of the president's race. i think what we're seeing in the race is essentially the race regressing to the mean. it's basically the race going to what its stable equilibrium is. if you go back and you look at the nate silver model, the role that nate silver's model plays in the psychology of liberals is a topic we could do a whole show on. people are wearing out their mouse button by clicking refresh. basically the race is where it was in june. i mean, so everything that was, you know, before everyone started campaigning, right, mitt romney gets the nomination, you basically have the race and then you have brrrrrr the race and now we're back to where we are essentially. what's been fascinating is this meta battle over momentum. i am fascinated by the amount of energy and labor being put in by both campaigns trying to spin it that they are winning when people are going to vote. like i really honestly don't get it. >> especially when you think about the fact that momentum is a con
of going away from obama to romney, four states, four or five states, that's really where, you know, all of this matters. it's a little like cable news pundants after debates talking about how people out there in the country are going to see this debate. they have no idea. >> how dare they? >> they're looking at their blackberry which is getting text and e-mails from, who? other consultants from the campaign. it's a weird closed loop that pretends to have a relation to the electorate. >> you said something in the greenroom which hopefully you didn't say to me in confidence. >> if so i'll never be on the show again. >> you said to me in the greenroom, there is a feedback loop. that you as a political reporter, i have had this skpeerps too, showing up to talk to voters. just knocking on the doors. the things you get back from them are them saying what they heard on the news. >> here's the point. we've had the same political story in this country for 12 years. we are an evenly divided country. the obama election in 2008 was a little bit of an exception because of the disaster in the bush ye
into the atmosphere, that's one whole year of total co 2 to the united states. p.m. obama is committed to going forward with it, that's all of the oil we import from the persian gulf on a daily basis. on december 31st of this year romney said he'll allow all the wind tax breaks to expire so the wind industry is going to collapse in our country even though 12,000 new megawatts of wind have been installed in the united states this year alone. and barack obama says he's going to extend them and give the same kind of breaks to solar going out into the future. the president's epa is looking at the regulation of green house gases and mitt romney is saying, absolutely not. so, issue after issue, one after another, there is a big dividing line between these two people, and for anyone who thinks that there will be no difference if they elect one or the other on this issue, they could not be more wrong. okay? this is a stark difference and it's going to actually impact how many people in the future die, how many people in the future have their lives changed unalterably by climate change here in the unite
